The V1 is the best detector that I have ever had. Its range far surpasses that of many other detectors, I really can't imagine that the tint will hinder the performance dramatically.

Hey Baer,

No extra tint on the windshield other than the factory glass. I am not at all worried about laser since I know that the detector will really only alert you that you are about to get a laser ticket :o) I am more concerned about actual Radar detection range, especially if a V1 is still worth the $400 since I have metallic tint.

Thanks for the input,

Do you have metallic tint on your windshield as well. Most laser will hit you head on. I have a V1 and I see the cop before he shoots me with laser. Only sometimes will I pick up laser spray on the V1. Laser is a really tough thing to detect unless it is directed towards you, even with a great detector such as the V1.
